Hilda's story

Sra. Hilda is a member of the Communal Bank “Mujeres del 2000” (Women of 2000), which is located in the District and Province of Lamas, Department of San Martín. She is 56 years old, widowed, and the mother of three adult children. Motivated by her desire to succeed and fulfill her dreams, Hilda started her own business selling groceries. With her earnings, she is able to support her household financially. Hilda has been in business for ten years and to date has attracted very good customers. She has regular customers who come to her store on daily basis because she carries all the necessary products that any housewife would need. Hilda welcomes each customer individually with her charming personality.


With this loan of 1000 soles, she will buy rice and sugar in sacks, cookies, noodles and salt in packets, milk, and also a refrigerator for storing different types of meats. This will enable her to provide better service to her customers. Hilda desires to continue working and is grateful to Manuela Ramos for providing assistance to women like her and providing them with opportunities to develop in the communities where they live.
